About Marc

Learn Marc’s areas of practice.

Chicago, Illinois native MARC J. BLUMENTHAL has always known he wanted to be a lawyer. Inspired by diverse individuals in the field of law as a youth, Mr. Blumenthal realized he wanted to participate in a profession where he, like the lawyers he admired, would have opportunities to affect positive changes in people’s lives.

After studying at the University of Illinois at Champaign, where he received a B.A. in History, Mr. Blumenthal attended the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago-Kent College of Law, graduating in 1976. Upon graduation, Mr. Blumenthal chose to stay and practice law in Illinois, because he enjoys the strong sense of community in the Chicago area. Now, he brings more than thirty years’ experience in law to his role as the principal of the Law Offices of Marc J. Blumenthal, Ltd., located in Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

Licensed in both federal and state courts, Mr. Blumenthal represents individuals and closely held corporations. Mr. Blumenthal provides personalized service, knowing that every client and set of facts is unique. Within the constraints of the law, Mr. Blumenthal works tirelessly to bring clients the best available solution to their problem.

Mr. Blumenthal’s practice concentrates on four complementary areas:

  • real estate
  • estate planning
  • business matters, and
  • transportation law.

Real estate clients often request that Mr. Blumenthal memorialize their legacy and protect their assets with anestate plan. Similarly, because Mr. Blumenthal understands the transportation industry, both from a legal and business perspective, he is able to provide greater assistance with corporate and legal challenges faced by players in the transportation industry. Whatever your legal matter, Mr. Blumenthal’s unique subject-matter experience provides him with know-how rarely found in any one attorney.

Mr. Blumenthal is active in the legal and business communities. As a director, as well as member, of the Illinois Real Estate Lawyers Association, he speaks at a variety of real estate seminars, both to professionals in the real estate field and members of the public. Additionally, Mr. Blumenthal’s other affiliations, which reflect the diversity of his practice, include membership in the Illinois State Bar Association and the Transportation Lawyers Association. In concert with serving as a member of the Probate and Estate Planning Committee of the Northwest Suburban Bar Association, Mr. Blumenthal frequently contributes to that organization by presenting at its estate planning and probate seminars.

In recent years, Mr. Blumenthal has become increasingly involved with local charities and non-profit organizations, using his legal experience to further his professional goal of making a difference in other people’s lives. One rewarding pursuit has been working with Avenues to Independence, which assists developmentally disabled adults. Mr. Blumenthal, a long-time resident of Buffalo Grove, Illinois, currently serves as the President of theBuffalo Grove Chamber of Commerce.

I have worked closely with Marc Blumenthal for over 20 years, primarily on a variety of real estate related matters ranging from buyer and seller closings, to tenant/landlord concerns and foreclosures. Marc's depth of experience is immeasurably beneficial to his client. Additionally,both he and his professional staff are highly efficient, a pleasure to work with, readily accessible, always on top of details and consisitently provide excellent communications with all parties at all times. I highly recommend Marc as an exemplary choice for real estate, estate and family matters.

Excellent attorney
Highly ethical and trustworthy attorney. He has helped me and my wife with our wills and buying and selling our home(s) in the past. He recommended an excellent real estate agent for my mother who was able to sell her home quickly and he handled the closing very effectively. He has also helped my daughters look at apartment leases giving them advise as to possible changes. He is extremely communicative, keeping us up to date on all matters. In all my dealings with him I have never had any doubt about his high ethical standards. He also gives lay explanations, e.g. in developing trusts, which were very complicated to understand and he made it much easier. I recommend him without reservation: 5 stars!
